Thoughts and prayers with you, Kyles! My youngest daughter was diagnosed with mono this past March - she didn't have the severe symptoms you sometimes hear about, although she did not have as much energy as usual. She was doing so poorly in school already - I was so worried that the mono would mean that she just wouldn't pass at all (the no energy meant even less energy than usual for homework and studying). Mono is much more common than most people realize - I've read that more than 90% of the population (west) has had it, and most didn't realize. Take your vitamins and get lots of rest!

I am really sorry that you are sick and I know God will be watching over you as you get better.

I hope you blood tests are positive and you must think positive.

I tend to find this admirable instead of nosy most of the time. Would that we all lived as if we were in small villages again. Sorry about the rash, gf.

Hope everything goes OK Kyles, you need some vegemite toast and a soft boiled egg to help you feel better! (Did your mum make that for you when you were sick when you were little? Mine did) glad you have people to help there, its awful being ill and a long way from family. Take care

sorry to hear it kyles.

umm, ya know, those british doctors are some of the finest in the world...

i hope they'll have you feeling better soon.

a cool thing about the mono blood test is that they'll not only be able to tell if you have it now, but if not, they can also tell you if you've had it in the past few years, or even a long time ago.

I want to add my good wishes for a speedy recovery. I had mono and know how wiped out one feels. Take really good care of yourself and hope you are well shortly. I hadn't heard of a rash with it, though.
